A deadly misspelling!


This is the craziest misspelling I've seen all week. MarieC, who found this one, says, I don't know what a "homocide" is, but it doesn't sound good!

I agree. It sounds, perhaps, like something that's very un-PC... Yikes! (For the record, I am against "homocide," but on days when I'm especially agitated, I might advocate misspellercide.)

Thanks to MarieC for spotting this one. (And don't forget to visit MarieC's blog--she offers a lot of great tips for getting the most value for your money in this crazy economy!)

Wow, that is a really unfortunate misspelling.

Yep, something very EXTREMELY un-PC about that one.

But wait....he was allegedly killed by his girlfriend so shouldn't that be heterocide?

People are always trying to blame the gays for the ills of society. Well, this event wasn't doing much to protect the sanctity of marriage.

Thank you for bringing the heinous miscarriage of justice to the public's attention.

Indeed, on both counts!

Heterocide! Why, yes--you're absolutely right! LOL.

If only we'd let them marry, perhaps they wouldn't be so bloodthirsty...

(all kidding aside, I'm in Nashville, and the news dampened the 4th of July festivities around here)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Ha! I'm all about them being able to marry. :) (Although I've never seen a particularly bloodthirsty one. Just a lot of very stylish ones...)

Yeah, I can imagine that this news made Nashville folks upset. I know I'd feel equally melancholy if an athlete from a Philly sports team died so unepectedly. So sad. :(

Woot! Thanks for the shout-out for my frugality blog. Although, now that puts me under the gun to post to it more often. :-)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

You're welcome, Marie! I look forward to reading more of your writing. :)

Hee hee! Heterocide.

Love it.

I know this is a tragic situation but I laughed at that misspelling. A lot.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Hehehe. Perhaps you're slightly evil. ;)
